Brewed from the finest malted barley, hops, yeast, and water.
Ed. note: The label states that the brewery is Steinhaus, which does not own a facility. This beer appears to be brewed at two facilities, the second one being August Schell in New Ulm, MN.

The body is a dark gold that is almost orange. The head is slightly off white and the beer has tons of carbonation bubbles. The aroma Teh aroma is sweet with cherries and some carrots. There is also some hints of sweaty socks. The taste has some apple core and some dry grass in the finsh. The body is light with smooth carbonation. A decent amber.

Pours a deep amber with a thin reddish head. Aromas of oats and caramel. Very drinkable with a nice finish. I am a big fan of ambers and this one ranks among my favorites.

Aroma is well balanced mix of hops and malts, not too strong though. Nice amber body, thin white head. Disappointing flavor after such a good aroma. Pretty bland, some burnt, but then just finishes watery and lifeless. Not my favorite beer.

DId not taste that much like a typical hoppy amber, but it was a fine brew nonetheless. A good session beer. Not my favorite Amber, but enjoyable.

Bright, shiny copper with a head that settles staunch & creamy, almost cream-colored. Nicely hopped for an amber, there are citrus tones to the aroma with apple, cherry, grape, peach... fruit cocktail, if you will. Flavorful and mid-bodied with robust, sweet grains and mild hops in solidarity. Well-crafted, dangerously drinkable, highly sessionable and utterly satisfying.

I’m not one to normally recommend an Amber, but this is a brew that will please anyone when they simply ask you for "a beer". A wonderful transitional beer to the world of craft brewing.

Sweet roasted maltiness, caramel, toffee, and bread dough...underneath a medium bitter hoppiness that cuts through the sweetness nicely. Very drinkable.

And amber this one is indeed, with a creamy off-white head. Smells all fruity with sweet malts. My bottle must be fresher than those of other reviewers, ’cause it’s got a clean bready taste accompanied by caramel and apple with a light, earthy hop bitterness. Good session material.

UPDATED: SEP 10, 2014 Glad to see that my rating from nine years ago is spot on. Way to go past Frank! This is a nice dry beer with a good balance of malt and hops. I liked it a bit better this time around.

Original rating (3.0): Pale amber orange, decent eight inch of head that lasts well and leaves behind a few spots of lace. Nose is mild and citric w/ a bit of caramel and iced tea. Flavor is similarly mild but tasty enough--identical to the aroma w/ just a touch of bitterness in the finish.

Pours a hazy amber/gold. Thin head, moderate lacing. This seems more like an APA than an amber. Aroma is very sweet with some cascades on top. Flavor is APA-ish, but with a caramel and sliht molasses flavor. Nice hoppy ending, becoming grassy. Very good for the price.

DrunkAsASkunk (847) - Lynnwood, Washington, USA - JUN 7, 2005
This beer pours a clear amberish red color with a thin white head which dissipated quickly but left a nice lacing throughout the course of tasting. The aroma is bready, malty and a hint of citrusy! Thr mouthfeel is medium bodied leading into a dry cardboardy finish. Overall malty with a citrus hint, very basic amber red in most respects. You can taste some roasts toward the finish, active carbonation, mildly tongue coating and prickly. Overall a non-experience in most respects.
